A family vacationing in Delray Beach was killed Saturday night when a speeding pickup slammed into the back of their van, Delray Beach police said.
Jorge Claudio Raschiotto, 50 of Argentina; his sister, 42-year-old Veronica Raschiotto of Mexico; and her two children, Diego Martinez Raschiotto, 8; and Mia Martinez Raschiotto, 6, were dead by the time rescue crews reached them Saturday evening in their crushed minivan.
A Chevy Silverado slammed into the back of the family’s 2018 Dodge Caravan at “a very high rate of speed” shortly before 7:30 p.m. Saturday on South Federal Highway south of Linton Boulevard, police said.
Witnesses estimated the pickup, driven by 21-year-old Paul Wilson Streater, was going about 100 mph when it swerved to avoid traffic ahead of it and rear-ended the minivan waiting to turn east into the Tropic Isle community on La-Mat Avenue. Police said the family spent the day in Deerfield Beach and was returning to the home they rented on Florida Boulevard.
